So you're probably asking whether Urusei Yatsura (2022) is good, or if it's worth watching.

When aliens known as the Oni threaten to invade the Earth, they promise to leave under one condition—a randomly-chosen human must win a one-on-one game of tag against Lum, the beautiful daughter of the Oni leader. The "lucky" person selected happens to be the lustful and unlucky high schooler Ataru Moroboshi. Given 10 days to attempt to grab Lum's horns, Ataru realizes how impossible the challenge is as he is faced with Lum's extraterrestrial powers.

Motivated by a promise of marriage from his childhood friend Shinobu Miyake, Ataru manages to catch Lum off guard. He mistakenly grabs hold of her bikini top first, but he eventually achieves his true goal. Although the game is over, Lum misunderstands that she is the one whom Ataru wants to marry, and she decides to move in with him. The poor student constantly tries to shake off the clingy Lum while doing his best to reconcile with his desired fiancée. After Ataru's heroic feat results in such a disastrous outcome, it is questionable whether luck will ever be on his side.

First of all, this is a remake of the original Urusei Yatsura, which aired all the way back in the year 1981! This opinionated review won't be comparing this remake with its original.

Urusei Yatsura (2022) is set in a modern world, but with a fantasy/sci-fi twist in which that there are aliens. Our main protagonist Moroboshi Ataru was randomly chosen to play a game of tag with the kawaii alien girl Lum, where if he were to lose, the aliens would invade Earth. But he won, thus through comedic and convenient turn of events, Lum ended up moving in and declaring marriage with Ataru.

The overall plot of Urusei Yatsura revolves closely around Ataru being a pervert, and Lum trying to stop Ataru from being that pervert. It's a romcom anime, despite the romance being toned down fairly significantly. It's sort of like a romance show but with little romantic scenes.

It's not the easiest to describe...

Though, the story was great. It was very fun and enjoyable to watch. The light romance makes this easier to binge, although fans of heavier romance may not find it appealing. The story is also filled with funny moments, perhaps not a single episode I watched without at least putting up a smile on my face.

In addition to the interesting story, Urusei Yatsura (2022) also has interesting characters. The characters are very lively and active, which helped further emphasized my excitement throughout while watching. The different personalities portrayed in this anime stood out even from the start.

Except for the supporting characters, they were pretty much basic.

Urusei Yatsura (2022) is extremely colourful too. The art style and animations wasn't the most unique, but was definitely satisfactory. The characters have so many different colours, all very vivid, especially the female characters. The background environments were okay.

And, of course, you've read the disclaimer above. This anime contains mild fanservice, pretty good ones.

All that was complemented with a relatively decent sounds. The character voices were nice, I liked them. I noticed that this anime employed some big, famous, some of the top voice actors and actresses and that always impresses me.

Additionally, you can look forward to some lively sound effects that are consistently appropriately placed, enhancing the watching experience. Not to mention the musics that are also really pleasant and enjoyable.

In conclusion, well, lots of gag humour, interesting characters, and enjoyable audio and visuals. Urusei Yatsura (2022) is absolutely a good anime, recommended to watch. Yes, you should watch this.
